Comes with this description: Ah, San Diego! Temperate climate, peaceful waves, good land, and friendly monsters. Despite its name, the Beast of San Diego Bay was actually a peaceful creature who was eventually adopted as the town’s unofficial mascot and was depicted in all manner of civic programs and maps, like this engraving from 1876.
